about sb-14, texas voter i.d. law. he also pointed out the travel hardships of those that they face under the law. then he started out with these five words. >> we call those poll taxes. >> that ad lib was used in the jim crow style to deny african-americans to vote and they were ruled unconstitutional by the u.s. supreme court in 1937 and outlawed. still with me, bob franken, joy reid, wade henderson and lizz winstead. >> they deny the african-americans to vote. this is an added burden on those who should have unfettered access to the polls, people who have voted historically with absolutely no problem. to argue that there is a voter fraud issue is to use deceptive tactics to justify these abuses intended to rig the outcome of the election. holder was right. it's because he was a surrogate, a proxy for barack obama. an argument that he's fighting for all americans is real. joe biden touched on that in his remarks. i'd point out that romney ignored it entirely. >> this is aimed much more at his panic voters than african-americans. >> absolutely. >> and in florida they make it very c

, illinois and texas, it is a mess. taking the train instead? yeah, sure, unless the track has gone all kinky from the heat. and remember last summer how flooding threatened a nuclear power plant in nebraska in that record hot year? this month, a nuclear plant in illinois had to get special permission to keep running because the extreme heat outside had driven up temperatures in the cooling pond. last month, the freak-out derecho storm hit the mid-atlantic. i had never heard of a derecho, the kind of weather i never thought we could have until it took down trees and power lines from ohio and virginia to new jersey. tonight we have more severe weather from the midwest to the northeast where it looks like ghostbusters outside with reports of tornadoes and power outages and general anxiety. stuck as we are in this record heat, we have no way of telling yet whether we're looking at this weird weather which is temporary or rather what we're seeing is genuine climate change happening around us. what we do know is that human behavior is affecting the climate. we do know that we're seeing a
